Owner description: Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Their stories are told throughout the house by their portraits, the objects they collected from around the world and the design influence they had on the house and parkland. See how Mary Elizabeth Lucy remodeled the house in Victorian times. The gardens include a formal parterre, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offer walks with picturesque views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.

Me and my partner live local to charlecote, we drive past most days and finally had free time to visit. We took our little dog and thought we would make a day of it. We parked in the car park, went to reception to be told dogs are not allowed. We were so disappointed and went home. However as I drive past most days I constantly see dogs!!! So I went onto the website and saw other reviews and it says there are dog routes!!! They did not tell us about the dog route, I’m so saddened that they would not inform us about this and just said dogs are not allowed. Who knows if this was race thing and they took a disliking to us, but it is so sad and I just cannot understand it.

We stopped here on a beautiful sunny afternoon. It was a bit crowded but there is a very large car park across the road. It is a bit of a walk to the entrance, but easy to manage. The immensely sprawling grounds are open to the public no charge and are a perfect place to picnic, relax, people watch, visit the café for a bite, and more. The house is part of the National Trust. It is beautifully kept and we had a tour through it that was quite informative. So much to see! Quite a bit of history here.
The gardens in the back were quite special and in bloom with all kinds of colors. So interesting to walk through. From the house you could look out on the gardens as well. Make sure to walk the path away from the house and kitchen to the west and look back after crossing the river at the house and gardens in the distance. What a perfect setting!
All in all, a wonderful Saturday afternoon well spent.

Had a pleasant walk around the National Trust grounds on a lovely Autumnal day. Lots of deer to observe. The cafe was good. It had some WW1 tributes around the house. However I felt it was a little overpriced just to walk around the countryside.

Went for an afternoon to look around grounds and have tea in the cafe.

Although cafe is not particularly cosy (or clean) the food was lovely and warming.

Grounds are great for walking even if it’s cold with amazing views including deers and stags.

Gift shop is a must, beautiful trinkets and bits for Christmas.

The house with impressive collections is very well preserved and maintained. It is surrounded by a large deer park offering walking for hours. The cafe (not very clean during our visit) is useful for drinks. The lunch menu is limited and so is the space inside. There are, however, plenty of points where visitors can consume their own food.
